Creating an NTFS Boot disk (was Re: DOS feature on formatting disk)

Microsoft does provide instructions on how to create a boot floppy for an
NTFS system ("How to Create a Bootable Disk for an NTFS or FAT Partition,", but it is an involved process.
You're probably better off with one of the 3rd party utilities that has been
mentioned by others.

BTW, I located this KB article after someone I know thought he would be good
and clean up his root folder by moving "unnecessary" files -- including
ntldr -- to other folders. Next time he rebooted: surprise! no boot.
